Archaeology of religion


In an effort to identify the material consequences of religious practice, Fogelin (anthropology, Albion College) conducted research at Thotlakonda, a Buddhist monastery of about 300 BC-AD 300 in north coastal Andhra Pradesh, India. He examines religion as it was practiced within a dynamic social structure of competing concerns in daily life. The study began as his 2003 Ph.D. dissertation for the University of Michigan; for publication he has expanded some sections and removed others, including the appended raw data.
